The new partnership signals a very fast about-face. The Huffington Post attacked Goldman Sachs two days ago for profiting from a global food crisis. A slideshow, titled “CEOs Who Look Like Villains,” accompanied the article. The first slide compared Arianna’s newest partner to Dr. Evil.

The Huffington Post attacked Blankfein earlier this month for receiving a 75 percent raise. The website also alleges that the CEO lied about the firm’s proprietary trading and called Blankfein a “Vampire Squid.”

It is unclear if Arianna will order a purge of her website.

    You know, Mr. Hat, there might just be a viable business model somewhere in that …

    Arianna may have turned into some kind of weird harpy, but she knows how to turn a buck.

    I can see why her first husband turned gay. Woof!
    For a second I thought Blankfein’s photo was another photo of Pierced Organ without the piercing.

    Her excuse will be: “I don’t speak English very well.”

    That’s not Lloyd Blankfein! That’s an older, heavier, balding Pee Wee Herman/Paul Reubens! http://images.tvrage.com/people/4/10372.jpg

    Call me cynical, but did this about-face involve a briefcase full of unmarked hundreds?
